OFFSHORE: Less than ideal weather conditions have kept the offshore reports to a minimum this week, but it looks like a fairly fishable forecast for the weekend coming up. Should be some dolphin around. Look for the dolphin to be in a bit closer with the east wind in the forecast. Kingfish should remain scattered along the 120' ledge. Bottom fishing remains the best bet offshore with good numbers of both snapper and some grouper around. Sardines, finger mullet, and squid all remain good baits for the bottom.
INSHORE: Snook fishing remains the best bet inshore. The mullet run seems to be tapering down, but the snook are around in good numbers. Flair Hawk Jigs, big swim baits, and shrimp jigs have all been good lure choices for the snook as of late. The big ladyfish, jacks, and few tarpon are also pushing around inshore as well.
SURF/PIER: Tough conditions and dirty water have made surf fishing tough for the most part. Scattering of bluefish and mackerel have been around. Also some reports of small pompano starting to come in. A few redfish have been caught at Jupiter Inlet. The jacks have been around Palm Beach Inlet in fair numbers. Should be much better with a little cleaner water.
